The sterilite bins you find a Walmart are a smart buy for storing almost anything. They have several different sizes and they all "stack" on each other, so you can get just the size you need.

And I also use the lynx blocks.

My prior Excel didn't have the size compartments that current 5th wheels models seem to have. Don't know what I would do with all that extra space. With the Excel, almost everything when into a tote of some sort. On the present Alpenlite, I now only use one tote for items that I would rarely use and everything in open, either on shelves or hung. Like it much better.

workshop -

Yours is much neater than mine. I do like the vent holes.

The only problen I have is storing my golf clubs. I tried standing them up in the shower. DW gave me 5 minutes to get them out of "her" house or they would be cut into marshmellow sticks.

Would have to be a big marshmellow to fit on the end of that stick!

I posted a few photos of the Excel yesterday...here is what I did with the Alpenlite....

Still working on a few minor adjustments, wanted to use it a few times to get everything where it should go then use a formica, paint and rubber liners to protect everything. So far I'm liking the easy access....

I don't dare show your pics to my DW. Otherwise I'd be starting over.

Good job. Well thought out and implemented.

Now this is the answer to a fifth wheel owner's storage fiasco ! NICE!
